As we all know, in recent years, the global environmental awareness is gradually increasing, which is not a “fashionable” trend, but a development trend. Many brands have joined the regeneration action, and consumer groups are also voting with their choice, green regeneration materials are becoming the first choice.
ZARA: GRS certification has become the threshold certificate for ZARA procurement, and will achieve 100% sustainability of raw materials by 2025.
ADIDAS: it plans to achieve 100% sustainability of raw materials by 2024;
Target: Achieve 100% GRS regeneration raw material procurement, while advocating for all suppliers to move towards sustainability.
Decathlon: GRS for all polyester products will be recycled by 2025, with a total of about 76,000 tons of fiber purchased annually.
In other words, these brands will prefer suppliers who are GRS certified in the future.
So, what is GRS and why is important?
Global Recycled Standard (GRS) are international, voluntary standards that set requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and chain of custody. The shared goal of the standards is to increase the use of recycled materials. The GRS includes additional criteria for social and environmental processing requirements and chemical restrictions.
The objectives of the GRS are:
• Track and trace Recycled input materials.
• Provide customers (both brands and consumers) with a tool to make informed decisions.
• Reduce harmful impact of production to people and the environment.
• Provide assurance that materials in the final product are actually Recycled and processed more sustainably.
• Drive innovation in addressing quality issues in the use of Recycled materials.
Each stage of production is required to be certified for GRS, beginning at the recycling stage and ending at the last seller in the final business-to-business transaction. Material Collection and Material Concentration sites are subject to self-declaration, document collection, and on-site visits.
Green development is the current development trend of the textile industry, and 80% of the global production capacity of recycled polyester is in China. And GRS certification is a “golden key” to open the international environmental protection market.
